Web Wednesday – April 18, 2012
Web Wednesdays – each Wednesday we will feature a website that we’ve come across while in our process of searching for inspiration, the latest trends, or learning about anything and everything we can get our hands on that interests us.
“Drop it like it’s hot.” At least that’s what Dropmark tells you to do when you use their product. Dropmark is the new, innovative way to share documents and collaborate on projects. As of March 1st, Dropmark became available to all users after successfully completing their beta testing this past year. Their interface is wonderfully simple to use; drag photos, videos, documents, websites, text (essentially anything that you would like) from your desktop and place it into the specified collection on your browser window. The files are automatically uploaded and you have the choice to share it with anyone that you like or keep it to yourself. You can also invite collaborators, who can can upload their own files to the same collection. This makes project management much more efficient. And if you’re looking to make the workplace a little more inspiring, you can also create playlists or podcasts in your dropmark account to share with your co-workers.
Every collection has a built-in RSS Feed, so anytime something new has been added, users in that collection will be notified. Dropmark is now also integrated with Courier, available through the app store, which makes it so you can add to a collection without even opening your browser window. Sharing files has become so easy over the past few years, and now there are so many options to use, but if you are looking for an easy, efficient way to share files and collaborate on projects, go with Dropmark. Below is a video, made available through Vimeo, to show you how it all works.
